Well, we've been planning on moving. When we moved into out house, we said we were on the 3-5 year plan for getting out. Well, we've been on that plan for seven years now and it sure does seem like the time is ripe for moving out. We've had several false starts, a few high hopes, but we're still here.
Right now the rental market here in Front Royal is booming, which is great for us because we want to rent this house out. On the other hand, it's not so great, because we want to find to rental to live in while we gain rental income history so we can purchase something that we really want. At this point, our mortgage payment is lower than the rent for every house that would be possible for us. So, we are looking at buying something cheap. The problem with that is then we own it! We're not sure we want to own two houses that are not really the home we are looking for.
Please keep us in prayer as we search for the Spiering home (for a year or so) and look for people who will LOVE to rent this house. It's great, if you like old houses with lots of garden beds to tend! :)
On a completely different (sort of) topic, have you heard that the cause for G. K. Chesterton's sainthood is officially being sought? I guess it's not OFFICIAL yet, but the local bishop has agreed to begin working for it. You can read more about it here:
How wonderful is that? I was thinking of him, Chesterton that is, and the irony of the situation we are in. In the middle of this conundrum, I hear about the movement for his cause! I have begun praying for his help in this matter. I am sure, if he's able, he will help this come out, not only right, but as a manifestation of God's Glory in a way that we had never dream. I would assume he will get some converts along the way as well. He's good at that; MUCH better than I am.
G. K. Chesterton, Pray for us!
